Tasty Tuesday: Watermelon Salad Recipe


As the fall season gets us whipped back into shape; those who are back to school students, back to work parents from a nice summer's vacation or just a full time stay at home parent. We all know the first couple of days and weeks can be pretty hectic and rough. Try not to cramp your diet by eating a lot of carbs, greasy or fast foods just because you don't have time or feel too tired enough to cook something up.  You need a meal or snack that will give you an extra power booster to continue through your day or week. 

I highly recommend eating a course dealing with watermelon's and other high in energy fruits. Watermelon which seems to be my favorite, is 100% made up of water which keeps your body hydrated and functioning. Adding a touch of small fruit with it will give your body the extra energy it needs. Food Network Magazine couldn't have came up with a much energizing relaxed watermelon type meal. 

For this Tasty Tuesday meal i'm choosing Watermelon Salad Recipe; i'm more than sure eating a bowl of this a day will restore your energy you once lost that full first day of school, work, or at home. This delish dish is so easy and fun to make you won't even have to hassle about cleaning dishes.
